Hello lovelies! How is your weekend going so far, anything exciting? I’m having such lovely few days, involving loads of food and reading while lying in the sun! Sadly, tomorrow we’re back to reality but at least I managed to fully relax and I’m now full of energy and positive thoughts! :) Today is Sunday, which means only one thing – it’s time for a new I Heart Summer Series post and I decided to share with you some of the nail polishes, which I’m loving for Summer 2013. Some of them may seem pretty similar but I simply can’t say no to a good coral / pink polish! <3 Hope you’ll enjoy!
Essie Cute as a Button
Surprise, surprise… Essie Cute as a Button is here haha! If you’ve been following me on Instagram or on my blog then I’m sure you know how obsessed I am with this little gem. I wear it pretty much all the time and it’s hands down THE summer nail polish for me. I absolutely adore its beautiful pinkish orange-y coral shade and I even bought a bikini for my holiday in the same color so that they can match! (: The formula is not Cute as a Button’s strongest side because it’s a bit runny, but oh well… nothing can stop me from loving this shade, it’s just too gorgeous! <3
OPI Do You Lilac It?
Now this is a shade I wouldn’t normally go for because I feel like purple doesn’t really suit my skin tone, but Do You Lilac It? is such a gorgeous light sweet pastel purple, which surprisingly looks good on me. I absolutely love the glossy, cream finish it gives and it is really easy and hustle-free to apply. The polish is really opaque and it stays on my nails for ages. I love wearing Do You Lilac It? during the summer because I can also apply it on my toes as well and it looks absolutely great with some tan on! (:
Ahh I just can’t stay away from my minty nail polishes, I just love them so much! I have so many that I love and I wear them all year round so naturally I had to pick one for Summer 2013 as well! I was debating between Essie Mint Candy Apple and this one but I like that the Revlon one is more green-based, which I love for the season and it compliments my tanned skin beautifully. I know that many people say that Minted has a terrible, streaky formula but for some reason mine if perfectly fine, maybe I got a lucky bottle or something. It applied easily and evenly and its staying power is great – I get at least four days of no chipping or tip wear. If you are a mint nail polish lover like myself I highly encourage you to give Minted a try, it’s really lovely!
Models Own Coral Reef
Coral Reef is definitely my second favorite nail polish for this season. As its name suggests, it is a gorgeous coral color that on some lightning reminds me of blood orange, which is fab! I absolute adore rocking such bright, vivid colors for the summertime, so when I saw this it was a love of first sight! It is great to use both on toes and nails and it instantly gives this pick-me-up look. It is especially gorgeous to wear when you’re tanned, which makes it even better! It applies okay, it’s not streaky and it’s pretty opaque but it takes ages to dry out. The staying powder is decent (about 3 days on me) and I am not really fond of the tiny brush but I love the shade so much that I’m willing to overlook its drawbacks! (:
OPI Party in my Cabana
Can we first have a minute for the name please? How beach-y and summery it is aaaah! <3 If I have to be completely honest I have tons of similar nail polishes, the shade is nothing very deferent or unique and we’ve all seen it before. It is just your typical muted pink nail polish but I tend to be boring sometimes so I love it and I’ve been wearing it a lot! ;) It’s very wearable and perfect for many summer occasions, which is definitely a plus. The formula of this polish is great – it is super opaque, really easy to apply and stays on for 5-6 days! Such a little winner! <3
Which are your favorite nail polishes for Summer 2013? Do you own any of these shades? :)
Lots of love,
